We are currently witnessing the launch and development of many new learning management system (LMS) innovations whose main objective is to meet societys requirements and the knowledge economy, which is fully emerging. Understanding new LMS innovations is essential for the improvement of the training and learning processes. To effectively implement these new LMSs in the classroom, teachers and trainers need access to real-life cases in which these methods were successfully used. New smart LMSs should be easy to use and to administer online educational content to ensure better adaptation to course teaching and learning styles. Therefore, it is necessary to find a method of modeling for all types of LMS. By combining learning theories that have long inspired the design of computer applications and putting them into perspective with emerging education features, a new smart LMS can be developed and studied. Modeling and Prototyping New Smart Learning Management Systems is a critical scholarly resource that examines current advances in educational innovation and presents cases that allow for the improvement of personalized and active learning. It examines diverse issues of social, organizational, economic, cultural, and technological context related to internal and external management of learning and teaching and their technological improvements. The chapters cover issues, methods, models, constructs, solution applications, or specific architectures and theories in LMS and feature a wide range of topics such as higher education, teacher education, and learning strategies. This book is ideal for graduate-level students, researchers and industry practitioners, engineers, research scientists/academicians, educational administrators, educational professionals, teachers and professors, and researchers involved in practical applications of engineering-pedagogical and didactic aspects in learning management systems.

What are the key channels to change in blended instructional practice as they relate to the use of a learning management system (LMS)? What role LMS users’ profiles play in facilitating change in practice? Can we model users’ quality of interaction (QoI) with LMS? How inclusiveness and affectiveness could lead to a personalized intelligent LMS (iLMS)? If these questions sound intrinsic to you and to your own experience and circumstance, then this book fits absolutely to you. Here, the term Blended – viewed as a fuzzy concept – is understood as a stepping-stone on the way to the future, to explain the multiple ways human beings think/act/feel of society in the 21st century and to embrace the opportunity of humans to re/co-construct new knowledge through the intermediation role of the technology. Initially, based on an online learning environment’ theoretical framework, some current issues of the educational processes in the digital age of Web 2.0 are analyzed. Then, after exploring the main methodological procedures, characteristic examples of research case studies follow, including LMS users’ trends and profiles and modeling of their QoI using fuzzy logic. This book offers useful information that evokes initiatives towards rethinking of the value, efficiency, inclusiveness, affectiveness and personalization of the iLMS-based b-learning environment, both by the educators, the LMS designers and educational policy decision makers.

Learning Management System (LMS) is the main element of internet-based education. In parallel to this, studies in this area are increasing. The aim of this research is to evaluate the current existing Open Source Learning Management Systems in the market. For this, seventy-two Open Source Learning Management Systems have been subjected to a general evaluation. After that, among them, the eight most demanded software were chosen: Atutor, Bazaar, Bodington, Claroline, Coursemanager, ILIAS, Moodle and Sakai. Those software chosen were investigated in detail according to features of the Communication Tools, Productivity Tools, Student Involvement Tools, respectively. Software have been evaluated by being members of websites, using demo programs and in accordance to the features of given at the internet website.

"E-learning has transformed the traditional premise of educational theorists. Educationists and business strategists worldwide have been compelled to think 'out of the classroom' and reflect on ways to create theories and strategies around teaching and learning online. The premise of this book is: e-learning is realistic and has a definite framework to it. The framework might require tailoring, depending on the business context and desired learning outcomes but it definitely requires a great deal of belief, commitment and interest from business leaders to accelerate their attempt at creating and building institutions. The book is an outcome of the experience of two young practitioners encompassing various areas such as understanding the client needs and proposing appropriate e-learning solutions, designing course material for e-learning products, applying old and new instructional strategies, developing CBTs and WBTs and evaluating learning products and solutions for learning effectiveness. The book collates the essence of the best lessons on e-learning from a practical view point and presents a case for designing cost-effective systems which corporates as well as educational institutions may use for enhancing productivity and learning in their organisations. It takes a three dimensional view of e-learning: content, services and technology, the various evident and not so evident issues related to implementing e-learning in organisations and takes a peek into the future of e-learning."--Book jacket.

Covers the priorities and challenges facing organisations who are increasingly focused on 'knowledge work'; it is written from a human relations - rather than a technological - perspective. It uses real cases, backed up by evidence and analysis from a detailed study into strategic knowledge based working (KBW). The content of the book draws on two chief sources: the author's own expertise in KBW developed over five years of blue chip KBW consultancy, and the results of a previously unpublished five year study. The book offers clear, step-by-step guidance to executives who need to understand, deploy and implement KBW. Outlines the key challenges for KBW at all organisational levels Self assessment questions at the end of each of the four chapters Interchapter case studies for in depth teaching/understanding
